The North Dakota of Transportation is working to clear I-94. Snow blowers and snowplows are working to clear the heavy drifts, expecially between the Jamestown to Buffalo interchanges which was hit the hardest.
The NDDOT says it will take several hours to clear these heavy drifts to make the roads passable and cleared for traffic.
Crews have removed all of the vehicles that were stuck on the interstate and are now focusing on opening up drifted areas. You are asked to stay off the roadways until they are open.
Many two-lane highways in the south central to eastern North Dakota are also blocked and impassable. Crews will continue to clear those roadways to open them. Two-lane highways were greatly impacted by the storm.
Drivers will be stranded if they travel on these roads and emergency response will be difficult. Because of the impact of this storm event it is going to take the NDDOT a significant amount of time until these highways can be cleared for traffic.
